Black Creek Pioneer Village, Toronto

4.2
Step into 19th-century Ontario at Black Creek Pioneer Village, featuring original buildings from early settlers to the province. Overlooking Black Creek River, the village is the creation of B. Napier Simpson, an architect devoted to the preservation of Ontario heritage. You'll see lots of structures that belonged to the Strong family, who used to own the property. The thoughtfully laid-out village includes a barn from 1809, a water-powered mill, a church, a blacksmith shop, and other distinctive structures from the time period. You'll also have the chance to see period furniture, meet the animals that live on site, and visit the restaurant and brewery. Open from late April to late December. Put Black Creek Pioneer Village into our Toronto road trip website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • If you fancy making a leap into the past I recommend you go there .... You will see how people lived in the 1800 's and how they work. Beautiful

  • The village has many houses the night life of the first settlers in Canada. Many of the houses there are hosts that explain about life in this House. There are also many activities for children and kids picture page need to find locations in the village. Great grandchildren.

  • Well, we had a fabulous time here. An afternoon out with a 6, 11, 46, 51 and 79 year old and there was something for everyone. The people working had a great sense of character and informed us all on ...  more »

  • The village was exceptional! Really neat and well put together. The reason for the 3 star review is that many of the interpreters did not even engage or acknowledge us (lady in the printing press), and others did not have much knowledge about the craft they were interpreting. A few interpreters were great (such as in Major Macs house). Would recommend the park have learning class on how to interpret history.
  • Everything here is awesome. Except the parking. We had heard that they changed the system, but it wasn't a good change. There is now a little booth that doesn't accept anything but credit card; no cash, no debit. Just credit. That is the one thing that keeps it from 5 stars
  • My fiance and I had our wedding ceremony here and it was truly a beautiful place to be married (Fisherville chapel). All of our guests had a great time and were able to enjoy the venue after the ceremony had finished. The staff were very helpful and experienced when it came to hosting wedding ceremonies. Thanks so much!
  • We enjoyed our experience at Halloween Hootany despite the rain. Would have been better with spooky Halloween music throughout the village and Maybe a horse drawn buggy/ carriage rides and more Halloween decor.
  • We did the night time escape room event that's held there. So awesome. I highly recommend everyone check it out.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
